How are you sleeping, I mean position-wise?
I CAN NOT seem to get comfy unless I am sitting up. And of course it isn't good sleep.
I'm on our couch. Ours has recliners built into it, so I sit down and then recline my feet. I have pillows all around me and just kind of try to prop my head on the side with one. I don't sleep well, but it is getting better. One of the main things I was so excited about with the end of pregnancy was getting to sleep on my stomach again and snuggle with my hubby in our bed without all the pillows, and now I'm on the couch! This will be day 7 past surgery, so I'm hoping it gets easier and easier. This has been a good morning so far!
Last night I just let the baby sleep on my chest after I changed and fed him and I think it is the best sleep either of us has gotten since the hospital! I didn't have to worry about him and he was snug and warm with his mommy. We both slept for four hours between feedings and when he woke up he nursed for an hour!! Who-hoo! We might try it again tomorrow night.
Also, Csection people, are your feet/legs swollen to where you can barely walk? My doctors/nurses all said it is normal and it will get worse before it gets better, but I'd like to think it goes away soon right? My legs and feet actually hurt worse than the incision...
rainydayluck:How long ago was your c-section? It took me a few days before I was able to sleep on my side, with pillows behind me and between my knees. Other than that, I was on my back.
It was at least a week for me before I could sleep on my side, and like you, I needed pillows.
I also noticed that if I went more than 2-3 hours without getting up to go to the bathroom my whole stomach/uterus was in a world of hurt trying to get out of bed.
babyonthebrain2010:oh MAN I didn't even think about not being able to sleep however I want! you guys are scaring me!! lol
Yeah, the problem is it hurts like a beeotch to move your legs up and down on the couch/bed, and twisting kills! So trying to get on/off sucks ass.
I also have found that if I don't get up for a while it is 5,000 times worse! Like last night- my awesome kid slept from 11:30-6:30! Woke once to eat and that's it. I was in so much pain when I got up it wasn't even funny!
